The Del Norte Tennis Association conducted the tournament for kids ranging from 7 to 18 years old. 

A group of 35 kids and teens took part, said event organizer Jane Rumiano, adding that the event is a great way to encourage tennis in the area and provide a showcase for these young tennis players.

“It gives them an opportunity to show their improvement to family and friends,” Rumiano said.”

The Del Norte Little League Junior softball All-Stars battled their way to the championship game of sections in Chico.
The squad fell to Paradise 10-0 Tuesday night in the title match.

Del Norte head coach Rick White said that to his knowledge this was the furthest any Del Norte Little League softball team had gone in section play, and they are the first to make it to a section title game.

White said the girls came out a little bit flat in the title game and fell behind early.

While Del Norte lost on Tuesday, White said he could not be more pleased with what the girls accomplished to make it this far.
“We’re proud as can be,” he said. “I would take these girls to battle with me anytime.”

If the squad won on Tuesday they would have played one more game on Wednesday to determine who would earn the championship.

The Del Norte Little League Junior softball All-Stars are ready to make some noise in section play.

The team, consisting of girls 13 and 14 years old will play at the section event in Chico starting on Saturday in double elimination play.

Head coach Rick White said the team is strong in all aspects of the game, especially with defense and pitching, and they are good hitters as well.

“It’s a true all-star team,” he said. “It’s been a blast coaching them. They’re just a fun group.”

The girls bring the right attitude to the team by having an enjoyable time with their friends, laughing and joking around, but being serious and focused when they take the field to play a game, their coach said.
